SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) has determined that a request to conduct a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on frozen warmwater shrimp from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’), received on February 22, 2006, meets the statutory and regulatory requirements for initiation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: wwhite on PROD1PC61 with NOTICES Background The notice announcing the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the PRC was published on February 1, 2005. See PRC Shrimp Order. The Department received a timely request from Hai Li on February 22, 2006, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), and in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c), for a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on frozen warmwater shrimp from the PRC. Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(I), Hai Li certified that it did not export frozen warmwater shrimp to the United States during the period of investigation (‘‘POI’’). In addition, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), Hai Li certified that, since the initiation of the investigation, it has never been affiliated with any Chinese exporter or producer who exported frozen warmwater shrimp to the United States during the POI, including those not individually examined during the investigation. As required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), Hai Li also certified that its export activities were not controlled by the central government of the PRC. In addition to the certifications described above, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), Hai Li submitted documentation establishing the following: (1) the date on which it first shipped frozen warmwater shrimp for export to the United States and the date on which the frozen warmwater shrimp was first entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption; (2) the volume of its first shipment (and certification of no subsequent shipments); and (3) the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States. The Department conducted customs database queries to confirm that Hai Li’s shipment of subject merchandise during the POR had entered the United States for consumption and had been suspended for antidumping duties. Initiation of New Shipper Reviews Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1),we find that the request made by Hai Li, a producer and exporter, meets the threshold requirements for the initiation of a new shipper review for the shipment of frozen warmwater shrimp from the PRC. See Memorandum to the File through James C. Doyle, Director, AD/CVD Operations, Office 9, from Christopher D. Riker, Program Manager, AD/CVD Operations, Office 9: New Shipper Initiation Checklist, dated March 17, 2006). The POR for this new shipper review is July 16, 2004, through January 31, 2006. See 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(ii)(A). We intend to issue preliminary results of this review no later than 180 days from the date of initiation, and final results of this review no later than 270 days from the date of initiation. See section 751 (a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act. Because Hai Li has certified that it produced and exported the frozen and warmwater shrimp on which it based its request for a new shipper review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to allow, at the option of the importer, the posting of a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for each entry of frozen warmwater shimp that was both produced and exported by Hai Li until the completion of the new shipper review, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The notice announcing the antidumping duty order on certain frozen 
warmwater shrimp from the PRC was published on February 1, 2005. See 
PRC Shrimp Order. The Department received a timely request from Hai Li 
on February 22, 2006, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff 
Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), and in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.214(c), for a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on 
frozen warmwater shrimp from the PRC.
    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(b)(2)(I), Hai Li certified that it did not export frozen 
warmwater shrimp to the United States during the period of 
investigation (``POI''). In addition, pursuant to section 
751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), Hai Li 
certified that, since the initiation of the investigation, it has never 
been affiliated with any Chinese exporter or producer who exported 
frozen warmwater shrimp to the United States during the POI, including 
those not individually examined during the investigation. As required 
by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), Hai Li also certified that its export 
activities were not controlled by the central government of the PRC.
    In addition to the certifications described above, pursuant to 19 
CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), Hai Li submitted documentation establishing the 
following: (1) the date on which it first shipped frozen warmwater 
shrimp for export to the United States and the date on which the frozen 
warmwater shrimp was first entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption; (2) the volume of its first shipment (and certification of 
no subsequent shipments); and (3) the date of its first sale to an 
unaffiliated customer in the United States.
    The Department conducted customs database queries to confirm that 
Hai Li's shipment of subject merchandise during the POR had entered the 
United States for consumption and had been suspended for antidumping 
duties.

Initiation of New Shipper Reviews

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.214(d)(1),we find that the request made by Hai Li, a producer and 
exporter, meets the threshold requirements for the initiation of a new 
shipper review for the shipment of frozen warmwater shrimp from the 
PRC. See Memorandum to the File through James C. Doyle, Director, AD/
CVD Operations, Office 9, from Christopher D. Riker, Program Manager, 
AD/CVD Operations, Office 9: New Shipper Initiation Checklist, dated 
March 17, 2006).
    The POR for this new shipper review is July 16, 2004, through 
January 31, 2006. See 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(ii)(A). We intend to issue 
preliminary results of this review no later than 180 days from the date 
of initiation, and final results of this review no later than 270 days 
from the date of initiation. See section 751 (a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.
    Because Hai Li has certified that it produced and exported the 
frozen and warmwater shrimp on which it based its request for a new 
shipper review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to 
allow, at the option of the importer, the posting of a bond or security 
in lieu of a cash deposit for each entry of frozen warmwater shimp that 
was both produced and exported by Hai Li until the completion of the 
new shipper review, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act.
    Interested parties needing access to proprietary information in 
this new shipper review should submit applications for disclosure under 
administrative protective orders in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 
351.306.
    This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 751(a) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(d).
